Taking doughnuts as their inspiration, these glazed and sprinkled crescent knots look as pretty as a bakery shop window. But wait until you bite in, where cream cheese and strawberries await you.

1
can (8 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated crescent dinner rolls
1/4
cup cream cheese spread
1/2
cup freeze-dried strawberry slices
1
tablespoon butter, melted
1/2
cup powdered sugar
2
teaspoons hot water
Assorted colored sprinkles

Steps

  • 1 Heat oven to 375°F. Unroll dough into 1 large rectangle. Firmly press perforations to seal. Shape into 12x8-inch rectangle. Cut crosswise into 8 strips (1 1/2x8 inches each). Spread 1 1/2 teaspoons cream cheese down center of each strip.
  • 2 Top cream cheese with strawberry slices. (Break larger strawberry slices in half to fit on dough.) Fold dough over lengthwise to encase filling; press edge to seal in filling, forming each strip into long filled rope. Tie rope of dough into knot; place on large ungreased cookie sheet. Repeat with remaining 7 strips of dough. Brush knots with melted butter.
  • 3 Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. In small bowl, mix powdered sugar and hot water until smooth. Spread over each warm knot; top immediately with sprinkles. Serve warm.

Expert Tips

Freeze-drying strawberries is another method of dehydrating. Freeze-dried strawberries will be crispier and lighter because they contain less moisture than regular dried strawberries.

Color the glaze with a drop or two of food color, if desired.

Immediately after glazing the dough knots, sprinkle them with polka-dot sprinkles or multicolored candy sprinkles.
